This 1976 International Harvester Scout II was purchased by the seller one year ago and benefits from a recent refurbishment that included a bare metal respray. Power comes from a Chevrolet 305ci V8 installed by the previous owner, mated to a TH350 automatic transmission and an NP205 transfer case. Modifications to the engine include an Edelbrock 4-bbl carburetor, an aluminum Edelbrock intake manifold, aluminum radiator, a dual exhaust system, and more as detailed below. The exterior is set off with a 2.5″ Rough Country lift, a 2″ body lift, a Rancho steering stabilizer, Pro Comp alloy wheels, and a set of BF-Goodrich Mud Terrain tires. The interior has been reupholstered in houndstooth, and modifications include a B&M shifter, a Grant GT mahogany steering wheel, and auxiliary gauges. A California emissions test was passed in July 2017, and this Scout is now being offered with a satin black rubberized hardtop, the original build sheet, receipts for major work, and a clean California title.
Originally Winter White, the truck received a bare metal repaint in Chrysler bright white. Per the seller, the truck retains its original body panels and has remained in California for most of its life. New side marker lenses have been fitted, along with all new weatherstripping on the doors, tailgate, and hardtop. A heavy duty tow package has been installed.
Less than 500 miles ago, the body was unbolted from the frame and received a 2″ body lift, new body mount bushings, along with a 2.5″ Rough Country suspension that included new leaf springs, bushings, U-bolts, performance shocks, and a Rancho steering stabilizer. A set of Pro Comp satin black alloy wheels wear 33x12x15 BF-Goodrich Mud Terrain tires all around. Power disc brakes are fitted up front. The original blue interior was replaced with black/white vinyl houndstooth upholstery on the seats and door panels. New carpets were installed, along with a windshield, gasket, and rear view mirror. Modifications include a dash pad with French seams, a Grant GT mahogany wood grip steering wheel, a floor mounted B&M shifter, a pair of auxiliary gauges, and all weather floor mats. Per the seller, all gauges and lights are in working condition including the original AM stereo. The odometer shows 12k miles.
